‘Watch Dogs’ release date updated for Wii U, PS4, Xbox One and other systems

An update has been posted for the Wii U version of the upcoming multiplatform video game, “Watch Dogs.” According to a report from Nintendo Enthusiast on April 11, the open-world action-adventure title was listed on the UPlay service, a website that handles multiple online elements from Ubisoft. The listing stated that the Wii U port would be released later this fall.

Ubisoft previously confirmed that “Watch Dogs” is set for a May 27 release on the other platforms. The publisher wanted to add more polish to the Wii U version as well as expressing some desire to take advantage of the console’s unique touch screen game pad. As a result, the new intellectual property won’t be coming to Nintendo’s platform at the same time as PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

“Watch Dogs” previously received a significant delay as it was initially targeting a release for last fall at around the launch dates of the two next-generation systems. In an interview with Eurogamer, however, Ubisoft realized that rushing the video game would not fulfill the original vision of the developers. Instead of releasing a questionable build, the company decided to push back the release.

In terms of visual fidelity, the new intellectual property should looked best on a high-spec PC, followed by the PS4 on the console side. The next-generation system versions are also going to have better simulated effects such as water. However, the gameplay should remain the same across all platforms.

“Watch Dogs,” which is one of the first next-generation games to be shown off, is based on a hacker who can get access to electronic devices. The action takes place from within the open-world setting of Chicago. You can find a photo of the upcoming video game from the official “Watch Dogs” Twitter page can be seen with the image attached to the top of this article. You can order the title from Amazon in the following link: “Watch Dogs.”
